Meet the Owners
Purchased in November, 2011, by Gary and Rose Boyke of Fond du Lac, the retail sporting goods business is a new venture for the Boyke’s, who also own and operate Vir-Clar Farms in southeast Fond du Lac County.
When the opportunity to purchase Dutch’s became available, Gary felt that the "Dutch’s" brand was an important part of the downtown community. He wanted the store to remain a locally-run sporting goods store with knowledgeable employees who have a passion for hunting and fishing.
To better serve their customers, Dutch’s expanded their top-of-the-line archery department, filled with a large selection of compound bows by Mathew’s, Mission and Hoyt and crossbows from TenPoint, Mission, Excalibur and Parker. This has been an opportunity to expand the gun department to include more hunting rifles, shotguns and handguns. The store also has an extensive fishing department and sells live bait. Dutch's was voted the 2014 Best Bait & Tackle Shop and Best Sporting Good Shop in Fond du Lac!
With something to offer every outdoorsman, Dutch’s hopes to remain a staple in the downtown Fond du Lac community for many years to come. Gary believes “Dutch’s isn’t just a place to buy your hunting or fishing gear, it’s a place where people can share their enthusiasm for the great outdoors.”
